output version information and exitIf FIRST or INCREMENT is omitted, it defaults to 1. That is, an omitted INCREMENT defaults to 1 even whenLAST is smaller than FIRST. The sequence of numbers ends when the sum of the current number and INCREMENTwould become greater than LAST. FIRST, INCREMENT, and LAST are interpreted as floating point values. INCRE‐MENT is usually positive if FIRST is smaller than LAST, and INCREMENT is usually negative if FIRST is greaterthan LAST. INCREMENT must not be 0; none of FIRST, INCREMENT and LAST may be NaN. FORMAT must be suitablefor printing one argument of type 'double'; it defaults to %.PRECf if FIRST, INCREMENT, and LAST are all fixedpoint decimal numbers with maximum precision PREC, and to %g otherwise.AUTHORWritten by Ulrich Drepper.REPORTING BUGSGNU coreutils online help: <>Report seq translation bugs to <>COPYRIGHTCopyright © 2017 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
